That reminds me of the time my younger brother (who was in college) used liquid dish soap (e.g. Dawn) in the dish washer (his excuse was that it said it was for dishes). It didn't turn out too well. :)
that happened to me, too! when i moved in here, i always thought it was weird that there was no lint catch in my dryer... a YEAR later, it was taking way too long to dry my clothes so i did some googling with my dryer make&model and i finally found the damn thing. i could have used the lint i dug out of there as a bed pillow!
